Trauma Soft Plasters can be spread on gauze and applied to the sites of trauma as long as the skin is not broken. Ointments differ in their ability to move blood, clear heat, relieve pain, reduce swelling and dispel wind-damp.

Plasters 1-3 are for acute trauma with inflammation (heat, swelling, pain). Numbers 5 and 6 are for cold disorders and #7 is neutral and can be used for either hot or cold conditions.

1. Ma's Wu Shu Soft Plaster Acute trauma. Heat, swelling, pain and redness present. Vegetarian.
